Independent Florence Day Trip from Rome by High-Speed Train
How you spend your time in the city is up to you! Perhaps visit Accademia Gallery to see Michelangelo’s David sculpture, or visit Florence Duomo (Cathedral of Santa Maria dei Fiori) to climb up Brunelleschi’s Dome. Relax in Boboli Gardens, stroll through bohemian Oltrarno or soak up the views from Piazzale Michelangelo. Entrance fees are at your own expense.
Your meeting point to return to Rome is Piazza del Duomo. Your host will show you the exact point to meet in the evening. At your arrival to the station, you will be transported to your city center hotel or the meeting point.
Alternatively, upgrade to include an 1-hour walking tour of Florence to see big-name sights such as the Ponte Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria, Duomo (exterior), Porta Paradiso and learn about the city history. The upgrade option also includes a skip-the-line entrance ticket to the world-famous Uffizi Gallery with 1-hour guided tour. After the guided tour, use your free time to explore the art gallery independently, and see its Renaissance masterpieces including Leonardo da Vinci’s Annunciation. Lunch in a traditional restaurant in Piazza Santa Croce is also included in your upgrade. After lunch, enjoy approximately 2-hours of free time to continue exploring Florence.
Meet back up with your host at a prearranged time, and then travel from Florence Santa Maria Novella Railway Station to Rome by train. Your experience finishes at the original departure point.

Amazing! From high speed train travel to Uffizzi gallery. The tour guides were top shelf. Excellent all round.

It was a great one-day tour. Mirjam, the coordinator who took us from Rome to Florence and back, was a marvel of organization and experience. She deserves every ounce of your confidence. Marco, our tour guide in Florence, knew every detail of the area and all its history. He took us around town briefly pointing out significant details here and there. His tour of the Uffizi gallery was a maserpiece of pacing, hitting all the right highlights to provide exposure to the most representative and important art. We felt enlightened while having great fun, because all the details were taken care of. And we were not exhausted at the end of the long day. I think this is because the pacing was so masterful. We saw so much without feeling rushed to pushed to see it all. The train is the way to go, and this tour does it right.
